A Prayer to Begin the Day from Daily Prayer

O God from whom we can receive no gift that is not perfect in love, and to whom pay no honour but by righteousness of life: Set thy Spirit within thy servants, that being made upright, they may move others to righteousness; and receiving thy love, may distribute it along all their paths; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Daily Prayer, Eric Milner-White and G. W. Briggs, eds. (London: Penguin Books 1959 edition of the 1941 original)
